  • four different colors of fabric
  • background fabric
  • rotary cutter
  • cutting mat
  • ruler


Step 1

Cut the four main fabrics into 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ squares as well as the background fabric, then draw a line, corner to corner, on each square. Place the main fabric squares on top of each background fabric square, pin them in place, and sew on both sides of the line with a 1/4″ seam allowance. After this, cut right into the line and press open. Trim the squares to 4″ x 4″. Next, place one solid 4″ x 4″ square on the center, then place eight half-square triangles around, forming a pinwheel-like pattern (see picture below for the layout pattern).

Sew the units to form rows, then sew those rows together to complete the block. Press the block afterward. Make as many for the quilt size as you desire.
